UCS Prepares for Next Bowlathon in Support of Mentorships
Are you a football fan, a soccer fan or even a ping pong fan? (Yes, it is a sport.) Then this year’s Bowlathon to support Mentoring at UCS is the event for you! Get your teams together for a chance to win great prizes and support a great program at Bennington Lanes on Saturday, April 6. The theme this year is sports, so come dressed in your team jersey or as your favorite player. This is a fun, interactive way to make a difference and support a program that plays a vital role in the lives of the youth in our community. Funds raised allow mentoring at UCS to continue to support mentoring matches and provide ongoing assistance to mentors, mentees and families. Local businesses can support the event by becoming event lane sponsors, donating prizes for the silent auction and encouraging employees to create teams and participate. Friendly competition is encouraged. All bowlers receive one game of bowling and shoes and are eligible for prizes and giveaways. Register at ucsvt.org/events. It’s $10, with each bowler encouraged to fundraise a minimum of $50. Team Spirit Awards and a prize for the highest fundraiser will be presented in every wave, and the event will include a silent auction. The grand prize for the overall highest fundraiser is a sports package including a pair of tickets to a Yankees game, a Red Sox game and a Giants game, with transportation included. The Bank of Bennington is Title Sponsor for this event, which brings the whole community together to support a positive future for kids; every dollar raised stays local.
